We have three lovely varieties of daylilies starting to bloom in our yard, yellow (far left, Stella d'Oro), red (foreground, Crimson Pirate), and orange (far right, not sure of the variety). They don't usually bloom all at one time, so something weird is going on.
It has been absolutely gorgeous here, mid-eighties, and it is hard to stay inside at work all day. It is nice to get home and spend a few minutes outside with Mitchell.
We have swallows nesting over our door for the second year in a row. It makes a mess on the front step. We tried to discourage her, taking the nest down every day, several days in a row, but she kept going back. We finally felt guilty that she would be laying eggs and not have any nest, so we let her be. Now she has at least four (that we can see at a time) beaks poking out of there.
Mitchell likes to run around in the yard. We try to keep him off of the front step, though. When my yarn packages are delivered, Pam (the mail carrier) is usually good enough to put them off to the side, out of range of the nest.
